The investigations of low resistance thick film fail-safe resistors are presented. Particularly the shape of a resistive path; the temperature of the central part of the resistor while increasing the power up to 4 Watts; the kind of composition material for the resistive path vs. extensometer effect, and the stability of the resistor are discussed.
